Shoot4Education conceptualizes, writes, produces, and creates social media video messaging campaigns in collaboration with nonprofits and political advocacy groups. Our videos have received media attention (Washington Post, Huffington Post); they have also been screened at conferences, and in trainings, workshops, and advocacy forums. 8 Powerful Voices in Defense of Public Education, the 9-spot series we created for the Network for Public Education, currently has over 2.6 million views on 50,000 shares, with a reach of 6 million, all without any paid promotion (“organic reach”). While our roots as a company are in video production for education activism, as individual media makers we have created content for a variety of other clients and causes and are actively seeking to expand the scope of S4E’s portfolio.
